[Samba] New at Samba and need some help

I have been working in the networking industry for about 9 years but am
new to the Samba World.  I have a client that I have set up in the
following manner:

1 Windows 2000 server acting as the Domain Controller.  It is running
wins and is being used to deal with the netbios resolution on the subnet
for the main office.

2 Samba servers running Linux Mandrake 8.2 and Samba 2.2.7 in the remote
offices being used to pass the netbios traffic to the WINS server in the
main office.  

The traffic is being passed via tunnels that are permanently created
between the cisco PIX firewalls located in all three offices.

I am experiencing some instability in the WINS functionality and am not
always successfull in logging in to the domain.  I will include a copy
of the global settings of the smb.conf file for both servers.  The file
is the same with the exception of the netbios names.  The reason I am
only including the global settings is that I have not made any changes
or activated anything in the other sections.  Any help in solving my
problem would be greatly appreciated.

        smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
        remote announce =
        domain master = no
        domain logons = yes
        smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
        remote announce =
        domain master = no
        domain logons = yes
        enhanced browsing = yes
        dns proxy = no
        encrypt passwords = yes
        workgroup = mhfcu
        server string = Samba Server for WINS resolution only
        local master = yes
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        wins proxy = yes
        netbios name = nephiwins
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        remote browse sync =
        wins support = false
        wins server =
        default = global
        name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast
        browse list = yes
        min wins ttl = 21600
        max log size = 50

Thank You,

Randy Morgan
